francisco and president clinton and the clinton global initiative to transform the civic city into the first of its kind sustainable resource district. since then we have built 525 golden gate, our puc building, one of the greenest in north america and on track to receive lead platinum certification. yes. we have installed electric charging stations here at civic center. we have free wi-fi. we have installations at the urban gardens and led lights in the plaza and we continue to do even more. i am proud to announce here that we have applied for lead certification of eight of the existing buildings in the san francisco historic civic center district. [applause] that will represent more than 2.2 million square feet of civic real estate, including buildings such as city hall, the symphony, the library, the art museum and more. it's challenging to retrofit some of the buildings for energy efficiency and water conservation but we have done it. once lead certified the civic center retrofit strategies and technology can serve as a model to other cities and i would like to take this opportuni
a political point of view. when i have those same conversations with secretary clinton, i feel -- she's always supportive obviously of the president's agenda, but it's a different sense of transparency and directness and pointing out, you know, things we need to be thinking about, and i'm not saying that ambassador rice in that position couldn't end up being that way, but initially my sense of her is, and we had this very direct conversation yesterday for about 30 minutes, is i do -- i have always sensed her to be more of a political operative. i know she's steeped in policy and has spent lots of time in africa, and i don't take that away from her, but i do have some concerns. again, if she's nominated, i'm going to give her a full hearing, and i promise you it will be a fair, full hearing. >> i take you at your word, senator. it's great for you to come on. a very clear point of view you've given us. thank you for joining us on "hardball." yesterday i spoke with senator susan collins who also had concerns about ambassador rice. >> it's obvious she chose to emphasize some aspects and downplay o
is that look, what's wrong with us going back to quite frankly the rate under bill clinton? you remember the clinton years? the largest economic expansion in our history? everyone's boat rising, everyone paying their fair share, deficit reduction, the middle class growing. the problem with what republicans want to do right now, wolf, is they want to lock in this tax rate that you have to sort of address the tax rate. we cannot have a tax rate locked in where they starve the government so that the middle class has to sort of pay more of the share for the burden of government, and you know what, we end up cutting away those programs, those things that help grow opportunity for the middle class. the number one problem with our country right now is sort of the shrinking and burden on the middle class. if we want to sort of expand the middle class and grow the middle class, the last thing we can do is sort of put more of that burden on them as opposed to asking the wealthy people to pay their fair share, like what they paid in the clinton administration. >> okay, cornel, let me say this. >> m
but not clinton era more. 38%, that is potentially a significant development, it could be a deal maker, he is why, president says he -- republicans to give in on having rich pay more taxes, republicans could say as least as not as much more. in a sense, it splits the tax revenue difference. there is still a long way from the deal. but clearly sign yet that this president, who has been attacked for not being flexible on spending cuts, by not cutting anybody. what to make of it? tom fanning. and former bush front economic director todd. erin, what are we to make of this? do you get a sent from this, that this is the making of a middle ground deal? >> i think it is. i was up on capitol hill today. john boehner had a press conference followed one by senate democratic leaders, they were both chest thumping saying neither side of getting closer, but privately they are, republicans know that at some point they are going to have to give in and rates will increase because. democrats are saying they will not concede on raising rates. it is just been announced went last couple minutes that white house put a
of state hillary clinton is weighing in on two major mid east situations, both with great u.s. interest involved. amid reports the obama administration is preparing to recognize syria's opposition counsel as the legitimate representative of the people, clinton notes rebels are now able to hold their ground and take the fight to government forces. >> we have been deeply involved in helping to stand them up, and we're going to carefully consider what more we can do. >> and on iran's nuclear ambitions, clinton says with the u.s. election over, now is the time to see if there's hope for negotiating in good faith. >> there is still a window of opportunity to reach some kind of resolution. >>> all right. back to main street u.s.a. yesterday in sandy stricken new jersey and new york a secret santa was handing out $100 bills. the anonymous missouri man sought out people who had been devastated by hurricane sandy. and while he plans to hand out $100,000 in total, he says it's not about the money, it's about committing random acts of kindness. which he surely did. >>> and speaking of random acts,
for you sos i got it right but i read this today: >> cenk: now do you understand that? the clinton era rates are 39.5 wear. all along, president obama was saying i'm taking away the bush tax cuts, we're going back to the clinton era rates right? all of a sudden not really going back to the clinton era rates. that's why i was saying you know what, they might increase the rates because president obama has said it way too many times not to increase the rates at all, but although as we've sheen you, they've also hint haded they might lower rates. he's not going to go back up and take the bush tax cuts away. the final might be 37%. politico same reporting as the wall street journal on that. they say it might be about $1.2 trillion in tax increases. they say realistically it could be closer to a trillion dollars. that's similar to what we've been hearing. the democrats are supposed to have leverage, but looks like they'll get the same trillion dollars that president obama has always been asking for. finally, or two final notes on this we've got the $1.2 trillion in cuts that we might be gett

in 1998 when she served as the assistant secretary of state for african affairs in the clinton administration. watch this. >> those bombings in 1998 resulted in the loss of life of 12 americans as well as many other foreign nationals, and 4,000 people were injured. and what troubles me so much is the benghazi attack in many ways echoed the attacks on those embassies in 1998 when susan rice was head of the african region for our state department. in both cases, the ambassador begged for additional security. the ambassador to kenya sent repeated messages to the state department requesting a stronger facility because of the increased threat, and those requests, as in the case of benghazi, were turned down by the state department. i asked ambassador rice what her role was. she said she would have to refresh her memory, but that she was not involved directly in turning down the requests, but surely given her position as the assistant secretary for african affairs she had to be aware of the general threat assessment and of the ambassador's repeated requests for more security. >> sean

was going to be covered. with all due respect to my friend, president clinton, and gingrich who had been running around in recent years patting themselves on the back for having generated surpluses i truly believe that the surplus of the 90's what tv coverage generated by the agreement that came out of what tom foley and george mitchell and bob michael and bob dole and especially george herbert walker bush did with the budget enforcement act which required those budgets to make sure that they did not spend more than they took in and i think the surpluses of the 90's were the best legacy if you will of the budget agreement of 1990. thank you, governor. >> let's turn to my old boss, the former chairman of this particular committee, and by the way, a little fact, he will remain in history as the longest serving chairman of this committee because of term limitations replaced after his departure. so, senator? >> thank you, bill and governor sununu for your interest in remarks. it's interesting to see how things are similar how the response in the action of the congress is different back then

revert back to the same tax plan that we had when clinton was president. you can't get from here to there unless you raise the upper rates. and that's what the president suggested, it's up to them to come forward with something congressman from oklahoma said that the house should simply take up the bill that the democrats passed in the senate that would raise income taxes only on the top income tax brackets. another senior republican lawmaker who asked not to be identified this time told reuters that the democratic bill could pass in the house of representatives if john boehner would allow such a bill to be brought to the house floor for a vote. here is boehner speaking about the president earlier today. >> members of his own party seem quite comfortable with sending the economy over the fiscal cliff. no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. >> speaker boehner doesn't want to propose spending cuts, so now he's trying to pressure the white house to do it. >> there's been no serious discussion of spending cuts

that you had when bill clinton was president. and i would like to remind everybody, we had the greatest prosperity then when everyone paid their fair share. 23 million new jobs. and why is it? because the middle class had the money to spend out there, to stimulate this economy. it's a consumer-driven economy. about 70% of the economy is consumer driven. and the other thing the president put on the table, i understand, is refinancing proposal. >> right. >> where people trapped in 7%, 8% mortgages can go down to 4% and 5% mortgages have money in their pocket. these are responsible homeowners to spend out there. so the republicans, i think they're brooding. i think they're upset. i think they're in shock over this election. and they are behaving badly in this sense. we can join hands and take care of the tax cuts for 98% of the american people. can you imagine if i told you, we were in an argument and i gave you 98% of what you want, wouldn't you grab it? this doesn't make any sense to the folks out there. and that's why the courageous republicans like tom cole deserve a lot of credit. but
at something that might look like the clinton coalitions, which is that the leader of each party, the president and john boehner, might have to take not a majority of his own party, but less than that and come together to forge some kind of a deal. i may be living in a dream world, but i think that's within the realm of the doable. >> we also have this issue of negotiation by public appearance. john boehner versus the president of the united states. and we want to just look at the sound bites from today and talk about how much of this is posturing and how much of this is sort of revealing a bottom line. let's listen. >> when i came out the day after the election and make it clear that republicans will put revenue on the table, i took a great risk. and then the white house spends three weeks trying to develop a proposal. and they send one up here that calls for $1.6 trillion in new taxes, calls for a little -- not even $400 billion in cuts, and they want to have this extra spending that's actually greater than the amount they're willing to cut. i mean, it was not a serious proposal. and so right
can tell you, it's not a hard ask, it's a partnership. and actually, as much as bill clinton and newt gingrich loatheds each other at times, they worked together to deal with -- >> on impeachment. >> to deal with republicans like myself on balancing the budget for the first time in a generation, balancing it four years for the first time since the 1920s, paying down the national debt. and you know what? newt gingrich always had to fight us on his right flank, and he and bill clinton sat in the white house and strategized. >> i have a question. >> republican votes for that first clinton budget that set them on the path. >> joe, i've got -- >> hold on. come on, richard. you must have been sleeping or somewhere in britain in '95, '96, '97, '98 and '99 when we balanced the budget for the first time in a generation. >> joe, i have a question for you. let's say boehner goes back to his caucus and says, you know what? from the president's first proposal, i was able to shave off $600 billion in tax hikes. >> right. >> so i saved that. >> by the way, we're going to end up at, like, 1.2, aren't
'm going to run against you, you got to be tougher. >> you know, i would go back to the clinton tax rates in a heart beat, but they'd have to give me the spinning rates as well e. they're not doing that and no one's ever put that on the table. what we've got in washington are republicans and democrats both trying to pivot to be the more reasonable party in front of the american people. the republicans are going to get blamed no matter what they do. that's political environment. they might as well embrace the fiscal cliff. >> you heard peter difazio saying earlier in the program, democrat, go off the cliff, there is no cliff. no problem. >> folks on both sides. look, there's not a clip there and they're going to play chicken and go off. >> and then you're road kill at the bottom. >> that's exactly right. most folks are saying since the economy's improving, congress, don't screw it up and you get some folks on the far left and far right, there's no cliff, don't worry about this. we're after the election, this isn't an id lodgical debating society. this is about getting something done. let's
of state hillary clinton unveiled the obama administration's road map to increase access to treatment and eliminate new infriction-- infections in children by 2015. >> so as we continue to drive down the number of new infections and drive up the number of people on treatment, eventually we'll be able to treat more people than become infected every year. that will be the tipping point. we will then get ahead of the pandemic and an aids-free generation will be in our sight. >> it's been more than 30 years since the first known aids cases appeared in 1981. in the early years contracting aids was a near certain death sentence. >> there are few scarier things than the discovery of a new killer disease, one medical science admits is mostly a mystery for which there is no certain cause or cure. doctors have called the new one bizarre, frustrating, >> suarez: but wider access to drugs in recent years has changed the way people live with aids. deaths have dropped by 26% from their highest levels in 2005. new infection rates have fallen by 50% in more than two dozen countries -- 13 of them in s
for the last two years that the rich can't afford to go back to the clinton rates and we see that with many studies. we see also that when you cut rates at the top, it doesn't always correspond to economic growth. the data is not there to support the right's position but they believe it as if its theology. >> let's go to politics we also agree on. i think boehner is playing a dangerous game. boehner says we're not only going to face this fiscal cliff, we're facing endless fights over debt ceilings from now on. there's going to be this regular thing, this, you know, vege amattic. we have to go through this whole thing. he's saying to the liberals who might be willing to go along with the deal, even if you go along with this, there will be more to pay in two months in february, then more a few months after that. he's making it very difficult for the president to convince his progressives, maybe we ought to give a little. if i give here on medicare, i'm going to have to give again in a month and another month. it looks horrible. the other side he's saying, this is going to be fun. maybe he's p

was elected in 1992 and in the 1993 budget we addressed fiscal responsibility by passing the clinton budget. it was very controversial. in fact it only passed by one vote in the house, and the vice president had the vote in the senate to break the tie. but that budget us on a trajectory towards fiscal responsibility. it was interrupted by a controversy in 1995 when the republicans, using the votes on that budget, picked up a majority in the house and tried to dismantle that budget. president clinton allowed the government to get shut down rather than dismantle the budget. that budget stayed into effect until 2001. in 2001 chairman greenspan was answering questions like, are we paying off the national debt too quickly, should we pay off the national debt. the projections were by 2008 the entire national debt held by the public would be paid off. no money owed to china, japan, saudi arabia. we would have paid off all those debts. all the money would be back in the trust funds by 2013. that's where we were the beginning of 2001, but the republicans talked people into thinking you could pass ta
. it will be funneled by the turks to the islamists. and this is tragic because the inaction while not as bad as clinton's inaction on rwanda. the inaction has empowered our enemies, the people in the middle east. at some time you have got to take a stand. nobody was asking among the syrian freedom fighters. nobody wanted u.s. troops on the ground. they wanted minimal arms to defend themselves and we outsourced our foreign policy to fundamentalist regimes and they supported the fundamentalists. there is one other issue. the nato air defense patriot batteries going to turkey to defend turkish air space and send a message to assad. that an inside baseball nato issue. and i wouldn't confuse that with giving arms to the syrian rebels. megyn: is there any way of establishing a safe haven any want the viewers to know syria seems so far away it seems like there is a bad guy running it and folks trying to exploit the situation. but the reports are some of these assad forces were going door to door, lining up entire families, shooting little kids in the head in front of their parent and shooting the parent in fr
hillary clinton. why? because five days after the benghazi attacks, susan rice went on the sunday talk shows and said this: . >> the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> jon: (whit perking) we know that that's wrong now. and we now know many in the obama administration knew immediately that that statement was wrong. that the attackers were not angry film critics. (laughter) but al qaeda or one of al qaeda's able a. teams, the ansar al-sharia mud hens. (laughter) so susan rice met yesterday with senators mccain, graham and ayotte to clear the air. how did that go? >> ambassador rice i think does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get concerning evidence that was overwhelming leading up to the attack on our consulate. >> jon: here's the deal: they may be right. th

now even though she saw sarah palin and hillary clinton four years ago. and i said to her a woman can be president and you know what? i hope you are. >> bill: i think we are wandering a little afar here. let's get back to this dopey catalog. in my opinion, what the toys are us swedish people are doing is politically correct. they want the adults who read the catalog, because they have the money, the tykes don't to say oh isn't that enlightened? isn't that what we here in sweden are promoting that there isn't any difference between boys and girls? and of course there is a difference. but in sweden apparently they don't want to acknowledge that pirro. i think that's what this is all about. >> i think what it is about is the fear of some people that if you give children a toy that is not considered something that their gender would want to play with that somehow we are promoting like homosexuality and reversals in roles. when i was a little girl growing up and i said i wanted to be a lawyer, people said don't you want to be a mommy? the thinking is if i had followed this reasoning, this
, signed by president clinton. and it says if a couple a legally married under state law, one of the nine states that now or soon will grant the right for same-sex couples to get married, those marriages are not recognized under federal law and as a practical matter, that deprives those couples of about 1,000 federal benefits. that law has been challenged by lawsuits in several states. if seems pretty likely the court will take that case because it'sen validating an act of congress. so it seems pretty likely that the court will take that or we could find that out this afternoon. now, the other big thing we're watching is the challenge to california's proposition 8, the voter approved measure that was passed in 2008 that ended gay marriage in california. two lower courts have said it's unconstitutional and we're waiting to see if the supreme court will take that case, as well. we should know as you say any minute. >> let's go back to the defense of marriage act here because this is especially interesting considering the president of course earlier this year came out in support of same-sex
, the president could be open on revenues to maybe not return to the clinton era tack -- tax rate and maybe split the difference, have that workable? >>guest: the republicans have certainly said we are putting revenue on the table, we believe this is the time for tax reterm. we need to close loopholes. >>neil: taxes will go up but they need not go up to 39.6 percents but split the different presence and make it 37 percent or 38 percent and it could be the beginning or a branch from the white house. do you buy that? >>guest: let's put everything on table. >>neil: you are not saying "no" upfront? >>guest: republicans do not want to see tax rates increase. we don't think -- we think we can find the revenue and spur the economy without raising the tax rates. >>neil: thank you and congratulations on your new prominent role in the house of representatives. good to have you. coming up on fox news sunday, chris wallace chats with house of representatives speaker boehner and talks with treasury secretary geithner. will the deal happen before the chock runs out on the 31st? chris will get to the bottom of
's the dignity of work and rewarding it and the fairness that the tax code that this is taking us to the clinton tax rates. others can speak to what it was under reagan and the rest of that. but the clinton tax rates which enabled the private sector to create more than 28 million jobs, enabled a great economic success to thrive in our country. so i think it comes down to the question that was mentioned, we say to the speaker of the house, the senate has passed a bill to extend the middle income tax cuts, the democrats stand ready to support it, the president stand ready to sign it. why? why are you holding this up? >> thank you.

like bill clinton, i remember interviewing both president clinton and also newt gingrich. after a few early skirmishes which led to big problems, they then sort of got a new system together where they would get in a room, chuck all the advisors out and get stuff done. i just can't imagine that happening with barack obama and john boehner. they just seem complete polar opposites. >> as you suggested, obama doesn't really have an appetite for this sort of thing. we saw that last time around and if you read bob woodward's "the price of politics" it's one of the themes that comes through loud and clear. he's doing some things differently this time, though and one thing that i think is very interesting, he's taking his case to the american people and doing it day after day. all of us have talked on this show and other places about how bad the president has been in the past on selling what he wants to happen, on explaining his policies and really bringing people around to them. and we see him now trying to do that in a more forceful way than he's done in the past. and that may strengthen hi
in their pockets before the new year. this week, secretary of state hillae clinton is joining in on the conversation, calling it an issue of national security. >> that's because if congress fails to pass a budget deal in the next 31 days we could see dangerous consequences, not only for the u.s. standing in the world but, also for the entire global economy. clinton spoke with the brookins institute yesterday and said while europe does need to fix its own props, much of the -- problems, much of the burden is on washington to build stronger foundationsats home. house speaker boehner said yesterday that he was seeing no progress in negotiations but the democrats, they don't really agree with that too much. they think the g.o.p. is ready to cave in and pass the plan that would extend the bush tax cuts for everyone except the top 2%. now, that's of course a pretty big gamble but since many republicans are calling for the same and back away from norquist's pledge, the democrats do feel like they have some pretty big leverage. that deal would just solve
think hillary clinton is saying she's willing to stick around for a while longer just to see a successor confirmed. i wonder whether she's going to have to make good on that pledge. this hey have to drag out longer than the white house had planned. >> we have to leave it there. mark, margaret and chris, thanks so much. up next, a new strategy for the fight against autism. we'll talk to bob wright. >> it's time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. christine wants you to shop small. the owner of wonder works, a charleston, south carolina, based toy store believes in cooperation instead of competition. she has a section dedicated to locally made products to make sure her customers' dollars stay local. for more watch your business sunday morning 7:30 on msnbc. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. if you're eligible for medicare, you might know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. call now and find out about an aarp medica
to the clinton year capital gains rates dividends. i think it's going to happen. to a plan to keep tax the same for 98% of americans and raise the debt celling so we can at least for a year put washington in the rear-view mirror. wow, can you believe that? there'll be some spending cuts to apiece the republicans, too, once they've bothered to identify the cuts they actually want. as much as some may believe that there's no incentive to run partisanship, the dramatic rates of income these fiscal rates give to tens of millions of americans who happen to be voters. of the 2 million jobs that could be lost, 1 million of them will most likely comes from the defense sector. at a time when china is rising. you see those planes land on that aircraft carrier this week? the middle east is boiling. i don't know. did we really want that big defense budget cut? i mean, maybe nothing more than the decline in spending is the war in afghanistan winds down. saving about half a trillion dollars over the time. maybe more. the areas where the defense job losses take place they look mighty red to me, at least on th
